“I am a jazz singer and needed to find someone to build a website that told my story and enticed people to explore the site. From the very beginning, Max included me in on the design concept and provided several drafts until I was satisfied with the results. He was always quick to respond to my questions and we talked on Skype a few times. The project was completed last year but Max continues to be a great support to maintain and upgrade my website periodically.
I highly recommend Max Micheliov of Design4music for incredible results, service and a nice guy to work with.”
~ Cynthia Holiday, Jazz & Blues Song Stylist - Singer Songwriter
“Maxim is extremely knowledgable in his field. Not only is he well versed in web design, but he couldn't be any easier to communicate with! He is skilled at interpreting my ideas and incorportating them into a functional end product. I completely trust Max as a colleague and friend as well as his business creativity and expertise.”
~ Jack price, Managing Director at Price, Rubin and Partners (Jack Price radio show).
“Maxim Micheliov is a brilliantly astute, artistic, and multi-faceted website designer. His expertise is very wide-ranging, and his formidable talents are particularly evident via his numerous, extremely effective and very dynamic website designs for musicians. His rapport with clients couldn't be more sympathetic and empathic. I could not possibly be more satisfied and elated with the quality, diligence and excellence of his work.”
~ Geoffrey Burleson, Associate Professor of Piano at Hunter College
“Maksim is a superb web developer and most genial colleague whose skills, passion and commitment are second to none. We connected around our shared passion for music long before we began our professional relationship, particularly in support of the Creative Music Foundation website where I am volunteer webmaster and for whom Maksim created their CMS system. I would hire him in a heartbeat for any project I was working on.”
~James Keepnews, Musician/Composer/Improviser, Writer & Web/Multimedia Developer
“Maksim is responsible, along with publisher Michael Ricci, for strategizing and, with an almost impossibly small team, completely revamping All About Jazz's underlying architecture so that it's been brought into the 21st century and is scalable so that new additions are far easier. He's also been instrumental in the Jazznearyou roll-out, an important new venture for All About Jazz.
Technically forward-thinking and always looking for new ways to improve the AAJ experience for its readers, he's been a tremendous find, valued partner and all-around joy with which to work.”
